The buses to Freiburg are leaving from the airport's exit to France:

Huwe

Thank you. May I ask 2 more questions?

1. Is this a bus all the way to Freiburg - no trains?

2. If I wanted to end up in Schallstadt - does the bus stop there?

Regards

Peter R

I didn't know that you'll be heading for Schallstadt.

So take the Swiss exit at the airport and get on Bus No. 50 to SBB-station, where you can change for a train:

Click "local transport"

From: Basel SBB

To: Schallstadt

If you'll be travelling not alone, the "Baden-Württemberg-ticket" would pay. It's valid between Basel SBB station and Schallstadt:

<Is it easy to get a direct train to Freiburg>

There's at least one direct train from Basel to Freiburg every hour (leaves Basel at 13 minutes pas the hour). But unlike Zurich or Geneva, Basel airport doesn't have its own railway station, so you have to get a bus from the airport to the main station in the town.
